Auto incident
No one wants to have an incident that requires an attorney, but if you do call Adam. Not only was his team comforting they were professional and informative. I have never needed an attorney for an auto collision, the guidance given was phenomenal. Step by step they made my physical therapy easy. The doctors that were recommended were just as cherished. Thank you for making my recovery organized. The office personnel is professional and thorough. The insurance claims were smooth without a burden of my time. Thank you

Adam Todd Dougherty is an Excellent Personal Injury Attorney
Adam did an excellent job for me with my personal injury case, he was able to get the maximum settlement for me, I definitely would recommend Adam to anyone with a personal injury case.

A salute to Mr. Dougherty
Mr. Dougherty exceeded all expectations. The idea that he handled me and my case in a most professional way was secondary to how secure he made my family feel. In our time of crises he served as rock of support and encouragement. He NEVER exaggerated or sugar coated our situation. He always conducted himself in a straight forward, non-attorney speak, comforting way. The result was very positive and I will recommend him to anyone who ever asks me for a good, hardworking, honest attorney.

Amazing lawyer
My car was hit by another car and I have permanent neck injuries. He was on top of the case and I received a six figure settlement. I was pleasantly surprised at the results, thinking that there is no way that I would be paid what he felt I was entitled to but he made it happen! I definitely would recommend him to represent me or a friend if ever the need. Adam really went to bat for me!

Outstanding!!
Outstanding well diverse lawyer. Kept me informed throughout my case. Excellent first class lawyer.

Highly Recommended! GREAT ATTORNEY!!!
Mr. Dougherty helped me with my immigration issues and helped me get my citizenship. After that I found myself in trouble with the law and he kept me out of jail. I was charged with a serious crime and through his hard work he was able to get me a withhold of adjudication and 4 years probation. He then helped me get my probation terminated after 2 years. Adam took the time to get to know me and I consider him family. Any legal issues I have I call Adam!

Mr Adam Dougherty - Excellent Attorney
Mr Dougherty handled a personal injury case in which I suffered an injury resulting from a fall that was caused by negligence on the part of employees at a business that I was utilizing. Mr Dougherty did an excellent job handling my case while always keeping me posted on case progress. Due to his diligence and hard work, a reasonable settlement was reached.
